Taking a deeper look at the 'The 13th' documentary


"Combining archival footage with testimony from activists and scholars, director Ava DuVernay's examination of the U.S. prison system looks at how the country's history of racial inequality drives the high rate of incarceration in America."

After you watch the movie, use these discussion questions to reflect on how mass incarceration impacts the Black community and our society. Give some thought to what responsibility we have to change this system and improve our society, and what actions we can take to bring about those necessary changes.
